Shop Watch January 2013

You’ve heard us talk about January’s sole release before.

Ni no Kuni sees a release on January 22, 2013.  Namco Bandai is publishing this title for North America.  Ni no Kuni is a joint effort between Level-5 and Studio Ghibli to make you feel emotion; or at least drool over its wondrous overworld.  If you want something more to go on, a demo is available for download on the PSN Store, or you can check out Janelle Hindman’s excellent review here.

Some advice: Namco-Bandai games can either get rare pretty quick or hit the bargain bin at the same speed. I’ll be buying the game as close to day one as possible – more than one person in this household was charmed by the demo.

The Future: Is an odd place. Plenty of announcements but nothing concrete yet.  Soul Sacrifice for the Vita will release soon, as will Fire Emblem on the 3DS. Both are scheduled for a February/March release.  The rest of the year has not formed yet.  Stay tuned.
